Activity Overview


Literary conflicts are often taught during ELA units. Building on prior knowledge to achieve mastery level with our students is important. An excellent way to focus on the various types of literary conflict is through storyboarding. Having students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict it using the storyboard creator is a great way to reinforce your lesson!

In “Blues Ain’t No Mockin Bird”, conflict is not only present, but is also an important recurring element. Much of the conflict stems from the exploitation and refusal of the cameramen to respect the rights of the Cain family.
